A Speeding Ticket Can Cost You A Pretty Buck in Michigan


Getting a traffic ticket in the State of Michigan can cost you a pretty buck. This is primarily because out of the 535,721 crashes Michigan had in 2019, 31,421 were a result of speeding. The State of Michigan wants to reduce this number and prevent further damage to the lives and property in the State; hence, the stricter policies.

Pretty Penny

If you get a speeding ticket in the State of Michigan, your insurance premiums will increase by 37%.

In one study, it was found that if you have an annual life insurance payment of $2,309 before a speeding ticket, you should expect that it might increase by 37% and pay up to $3,164. Nobody wants to pay this increase, for eternity.

While generally, the increase in premiums will only affect you for a short period, the rate given to you by insurance companies will not revert to the original premium amounts.

Criminal Charge

It bears repeating that any repeated speeding ticket will result in a reckless driving charge.

 Reckless driving in the State of Michigan means that you could be charged with a misdemeanor and sentenced to up to 93 days in jail on top of a fine of up to $500. 

You could face felony charges of up to 5 years in prison as well as up to $1,000 in fines. You could also face felony criminal charges of up to 15 years of potential prison time. You will also be required to pay a fine of between $2,500 and $10,000.

So, while you are paying an increase in insurance premiums, you also have to face fines and imprisonment. Hence, you should drive more carefully every time you leave the house.
